Although many of the stories were a little short for my taste (they were, indeed, 'tastes' rather than 'meals' in their own right), Charlie David accomplishes something impressive here. Each story has it's own style, almost as if they were written by different authors, but there is definitely a consistent 'voice' that connected them. I simply can't think of any better way to explain it than that. You can almost picture yourself curled up on the couch, a pillow clutched to your breast, as you sit and listen to Charlie tell you some of his favourite stories. I genuinely liked the characters, but wish we could have had more time together. Many of the stories were so short (3-10 pages), there simply was no opportunity to really explore a relationship with them. Perhaps 'tease' would be a better description than 'taste' but some of the longer stories (Pygmalion, Harvest, and and Narcissus) are handled beautifully, and even some of the shorter stories (I'm particularly thinking of October 13th) do an admirable job, considering their brevity.
